Nothing is too much trouble for the staff on Safari island. Everything was perfect - if I have to be critical in areas there’s room for improvement (woods very worn). But I personally felt it added to the charm and real remote Island feel. Had a semi water bungalow and three steps out back door on beach and steps down into the ocean off a private sun deck other side. Great option of food and drink and real feeling of paradise and happiness all around. Went on dolphin sunset cruise and saw pods swimming off our island and regularly small reef sharks and 100s of fish around our bungalow. It feels like your in heaven

Safari Island is a blissful get away from it all oasis. We spent ten nights on an AI basis in an over water bungalow for our 30th wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. We arrived via sea plane which is exciting and the views you get en route are spectacular. Our bungalow was big, well appointed and very clean with plenty of towels and toiletries. We looked over the bay which had gorgeous sunset views and we enjoyed watching the sea planes coming in and out. The food is exceptional and plentiful with a variety of dishes and show cooking. We enjoyed fresh tuna, sushi and local delicacies galore! There’s a good selection of cocktails available at the three bars and the service is excellent. We loved having dinner on the beach for our anniversary which is highly recommended. The beaches are picture perfect and swimming in the sea is so relaxing. The snorkelling along the coral is not to be missed - we saw stingrays, beautiful fish and sharks in various sizes. We also enjoyed the sunset cruise but the dolphins didn’t make an appearance. While Safari Island isn’t the most luxurious resort we’ve been to it is breathtakingly beautiful and the staff really made the holiday for us. Special mentions go to our waiter Hassan and the show cooking guys and the bar staff Thushara and Sanjaya - thank you! If you want to unplug, relax and be surrounded by stunning beaches, crystal clear sea and beautiful scenery this is the place to be! 5*****

My husband and I have just come back from a fabulous holiday. We stayed in a beach bungalow with direct access onto the beautiful beach and straight into the sea. Our bungalow was kept clean and tidy, towels replenishedevery day and even a bowl to clean your sandy feet changed every morning and left with tropical flowers floating in it. The snorkeling was amazing. Lots of tropical fish to see - and reef sharks! We took our own snorkels but there were some available to use during your stay. The food was amazing. Very varied and fresh. We were spoilt for choice at every meal. We particularly enjoyed the salads and the curries. Our table and waiter were the same throughout the stay and he was very attentive and friendly. We were full board as we aren't big drinkers. We found the prices of drinks to be reasonable with plenty of cocktails to choose from. The staff on the Island are very friendly and we couldn't fault any of them. The weather whilst we were there was wonderful and so different to the predicted forecast so don't worry if it says rain. We had hardly any rain in the day but it did rain at night - sometimes quite heavily with a wind. This did cause an issue with erosion around our villa but sandbags were always replaced when needed to protect the villa and beach. Fabulous stay would not hesitate to recommend 🥰

This was our third time on Safari Island and it was like coming home. We were very happy that we were recognized. It's just perfect! Everything was right - the food, the staff and the accommodation. A special thanks to Naeem! Thanks to you, we didn't miss anything. We were particularly happy to see Sharif again. We are already planning our next vacation in this paradise! Thanks again for everything, dear Safari Island team.

Simply paradise. A much needed rest. We had a magical 10 days on Safari Island. We couldn’t fault a single thing. The room was wonderful, the beach and water clean and beautiful. The staff were amazing, remembering our orders and always had a friendly word and a smile. Special mention to our waiter Abdul who helped to make my husband’s birthday special during our stay. We especially enjoyed watching the sharks and other fish while eating our lunch or drinking in the bar. This place is called safari island for a reason!! Hubby went diving and I enjoyed a massage. We also enjoyed a bbq on the beach and a boat ride out to Manta point. As we are honeymooners the hotel served us a private meal on the beach and also included a snorkelling trip as part of our all inclusive. We honestly have no complaints and would recommend a stay to anyone. Please come and see this beautiful island ❤️

Safari is my 4th island in the Maldives. Like all of them it's beautiful, relaxing and friendly. We had a sunrise water villa which was spacious and comfortable. The food was amazing, as a vegetarian the chef ensured I had a very personal service with lovely curries just for me as well as the other available options. The staff were lovely, so attentive and friendly. Amir our waiter deserves a special mention. The snorkeling is fantastic, with much bigger sharks than I've encountered elsewhere. Scary but brilliant. The house reef has alot of bleaching but plenty of new growth and a plethora of fish. Ideally I would give the resort 5 stars as much of it deserves it and we did love it but, it is starting to look a little tired and in need of a bit of TLC, especially the wooden walkways and decking. If you can look past that, and we could, then I highly recommend it.

Very friendly staff. Everywhere on the island. They will remember your preferences, your room. Food is so nice and well-balanced. I recommend to get AI. Water Bungalo is cozy and nice to stay. Snorkeling is interesting and full of discoveries. We were surprised how WiFi was good everywhere. Worth to stay here.

The stay here was amazing! The weather didn't really work with us but we had a great vacation and some great diving! The food was very good and we also had the possibility to go on the Dhoni for 2 days (1 night). We had an unforgettable lunch on a deserted sandbank and even saw a whale shark! Thanks for these great memories and hope to visit again! Can recommend this hotel to couples without children as this island is very very small, but very beautiful!

We have visited the Maldives 18 times, and Safari Island was one of the best. The hospitality there makes us feel comfortable. In the restaurant, Mr. Baa always takes care of us; he is kind and hardworking. The roomkeeper is meticulous and efficient. The staff at the reception and the maintenance team are also very friendly and helpful. The house reef is located near the shore, allowing us to easily enjoy snorkeling, and we had the incredible opportunity to encounter turtles, stingrays,and numerous sharks.
